Bebe would relish Benfica chance

Manchester United forward Bebe has welcomed speculation linking him with a move to Benfica.

Bebe, who turned 24 on Saturday, joined Manchester United in 2010 in a deal reported to be worth 7.4 million pounds, but he has yet to start a Premier League game for the club and has been sent out on loan three times.

However, after impressing during a spell at Portuguese club Pacos de Ferreira last season, there is said to be interest from Benfica and he told Antena 1: "I think it would be a good opportunity for me.

"For now I will wait for my agent to resolve it. He will certainly know better than I do whether it's true or not.

"Of course it would be a great opportunity for me. Maybe I could play more and they could rely on me more. I think it would be a unique opportunity."

Bebe, who has returned to preseason training at United, has one year remaining on his contract and Louis van Gaal is reported to be keen to offload the player.
